up with to give tax credit for those turning in assault weapon. and commission that looks at the overall problem of the mass violence. >> bret: shannon bream, thank you. get insight now from senior political analyst brit hume on both stories and the tone of the news conference today. good evening. >> what is interesting to see the tone and tenor of today, the last news conference of the first term? >> if you heard it and you didn't know when it was, you might think that the election campaign is in full swing. unusually partisan. most presidents may make a quiet reference to other part party. this president is more directly partisan than under normal circumstance than i can remember. i think he senses that the republican party is in bed with the public and if he deepens that problem for them, it softens them up to do things his way. but he was strikingly partisan. >> bret: what does it por tepid for debt ceiling negotiation? >> this is a place where the republicans have more leverage than in the recent fight over the fiscal cliff. the law already was going to raise taxes on
a lot of taxes and a lot of stories are moving in california moving from deep in the ready to in the black and coming at a high price in california. is it likely democrats will sell the story, that spending is not,er so, spending cuts are not the way to go, raising more revenue, more taxes is? >> oh, look i'm certain that is coming. there is no question in my mind that is coming but i can also assure you, bill, what is coming from the other side in the long run that hurts economic growth. in the long run that will bring about less revenue rather than more. what you're doing there you're taking money away from job creators. ultimately you will kill jobs that will bring about less revenue and everyone hurts as a result of that. it is not just those at the top end of the economic scale. it is those along every end of the spectrum and especially those who are hard-working americans living paycheck it paycheck. that is who those tax increases really hurt. in the end the government loses as well. bill: senator, thank you for your time because as we're asking these questions and t
give a tax credit to any one who would turn in what lawmakers are calling an assault weapon and also another measure aimed at creating the overall bigger picture of mass violence. >> at the news conference the president accused republicans of trying to collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the u.s. economy. they are demanding more spending cuts before they agree to raise the nation's debt ceiling. the debt ceiling is announcing the amount of money the states can borrow. today the president responded to some republicans who say they are willing to shut down the government if the president doesn't back down. ultimately congress makes decisions about whether or not we spend money and keep the government open. if they decide they want to shut down the government in order to get their way they have the votes in the house of representatives to do that. i think that would be a mistake. >> john boehner responded the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending statement. wendell, a government shut down, is that something that really mig
more revenue, through tax reform, by closing loopholes in our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it is fair, for example, to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down life heavy saving research so the that a multimillionaire investor can pay less in tax rates than a secretary. they don't think it is smart to protect endless corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans, rather than rebuild our roads and our schools, invest in our workers skills or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. so they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way where everybody pulls their weight, everyone does their part. th
it for 50 percent less than we do. their taxes are not so high or their taxes go do help them opposed to paying for mindless bureaucracy. >> norway is number one. peter, will you renounce your citizenship or america still the best country to live? >> why would i renounce being an american? i have great hope and faith in our country. my feeling is we are the most innovative society and welcomes everyone including my grandfather, a cigar maker if lower manhattan in 1902. this is the greatest place to be in the world. we will get through it. we may need new leadership to do it but we will get there. >> i will read this from gerri willis saying the primary reason for the slip in the ranking decline in the number of united states citizen would believe hard work will get them ahead. you say what, peter? >>peter: she is right. when a president manages to get himself elected by having half of the population pay no taxes and saying i will give you new benefits, by taxing more of the 1 percent because we have a lot of envy and we are jealous, that will encourage people not to work and it will e
katrina were not broken. they were people who had worked and had homes and paid taxes. so today, madam speaker, those who are survivors of hurricane sandy are not broken. they are not the cornerstone of the fault of bureaucracy or misuse. they are in fact survivors. they are americans who need our help. and i'd like to add to this discussion, certainly i join and want to comment on one or two of the changes here. in particular the individual assistance factors i think will be very helpful to expedite the declaration process for individuals. i'm very grateful that one of the changes they made, thank goodness, and this is what happened to our seniors, fixing their homes instead of putting them in fema trailers. what a celebration. how many had to stay in fema trailers down in the gulf forever and ever and ever while they watched their homes deteriorate because a few simple repairs could not be made? that is a much-needed step. but i join my colleague from new jersey and say, how can people who are broken and who are in need come up with 35%? and i hope that this will be one that is recon
, hidden taxes will take a painful bite. inside is the story from that conley who friends the argument more so in the washington d.c. area. local residents will be paying uncle sam more in 2013, between the two percent increase in payroll tax and to lesser known provisions buried in the fiscal cliff deal. there is also the issue of the health care tax, which also may hit some individuals. more details from the washington sunday examiner. the question we are focusing on is whether the president will bypass congress to raise the debt ceiling. we are getting your calls in common. buddy on the republican line. caller: good morning. it would not surprise me that he does raise the debt ceiling. the president alone spent over $1 billion last year just to himself. when does it stop? obviously he has never had a checkbook. i get a bill, i pay it. why do they just keep putting money out, putting money out, not take care of what they're doing doing, not realizing what they're doing? host: they give for the call. this from twitter -- the focus on the 14th amendment, section four, basically says that th
